Tricycle Operators’ Protest Paralysed Activities in Asaba

By IGNATIUS OKPARA, Asaba

Commercial Tricycle operators otherwise known as (Keke), on Tuesday took to the streets of Asaba, the Delta state capital, to protest what they described as government exploitation through double ticketing.

The protesters had expressed displeasure over the sudden increase in their daily ticket payment from 150 to 300 naira without pre information to their union, saying the new rate is outrageous.

Our correspondent reports that the protest, paralysed economic and social activities in parts of the area as workers and residents resorted to trekking to their respective offices.

Some of them who craved anonymity with newsmen said, “this is purely wickedness, how can they increase the daily ticket payment from 150 to 300, without any notice to us.”

“Most of us are operating our keke under hire-purchase, and after police daily extortion, we will be left with nothing at the end of the day.”

“This is a case of man inhuman to man, and we are calling on Governor Okowa, to do something about it.”
